Welcome to a world where colors are brighter, where the landscapes are more daring, the most spectacular waterfront, where history is more convincing, where tastes are more divine, where life is lived in the fast lane. This world is Vietnam, the latest Asian dragon to awake from its slumber.
Nature has blessed Vietnam with a bountiful harvest of high mountains, a murderer in coastline and radiant rice fields, Vietnam is a cracker. Inside, the peasant women in conical hats still tend to their fields, children ride buffalos along rural roads and minority people living impossible gradients.
Vietnam is a country of optimists determined to have resisted the war after the war, survived colonialism and communism, and now getting to grips with negotiating the world of capitalism.
